Remembering the Meaning
Joe Charlebois

Here is hoping that everyone reading this column had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Many of you, I am sure, spent it with family, or friends feasting on turkey, cranberries, mashed potatoes, dressing, and, yes, even gluten-free stuffing.

Worldwide Terrorism and How to Stop It
Tom McLaughlin

Kuching, Malaysian Borneo – The Paris tragedy cost many lives and was the result of a family located in the northern slums of the city. I watched on BBC as hundreds of police stormed the flat and took a few members into custody, while killing two others.

Why Give In To Terrorists?
Harry M. Covert

There is a very good question to consider entering the Thanksgiving festivities most especially as people chomp down on turkey and gravy and all sorts of other tasty morsels. Perhaps the tune dancing in heads will be like “over the river and through the woods to grandma’s house we go.” Yes, nice for everyone.

The national news media claims to be under assault by the Republican candidates for the presidency. There’s no question that GOP candidates like Donald Trump, Ben Carson and others see benefit in forwarding a dialogue about the lack of fairness in how Republican candidates are covered versus the more favorable reporting on Democrats.

Geo has cancer. It is curable but metastasizing. Last Friday he collapsed as a result of an attack on his heart. He is recovering, but he is still in pain. He is getting all types of advice from friends, family and physicians on how to proceed.

ISIL and the Great War
Patricia A. Kelly

What a tragedy, Paris under attack. More innocent people killed, and a clear display of the reach of ISIL.

Book on Wallace “Somewhat Incomprehensible”
Tom McLaughlin

Kuching, Malaysian Borneo – While in the States, I ordered a book from Harvard University Press. I should have known, of course, that it would be unmanageable and way over my head, but in the frenzy of travel, I did it anyway.
